With Rebecca Shaffer

This presentation focuses on the signs of emotion dysregulation in Fragile X syndrome and ways to respond using practical strategies.

Emotional dysregulation is an atypical emotional response sometimes referred to in the general population as mood swings. Examples include angry outbursts, anxiety, depression, and even self-harm or suicidal thoughts, which can over time affect the overall quality of life and relationships at home, work, school, and other social activities.
